Dalia and Krishna spoke about their research platform, sustainability resources and innovation (SRI) platform at the Department of Chemistry, Umeå University, where they have been working during the last few years in various areas related to system level thinking, circular bioeconomy and sustainability. Later this spring they will be organizing a workshop in these questions, with support from Arcum strategic funds. An important part of this workshop is the ambition to connect natural scientists with social scientists in a crossdisciplinary collaboration with both questions of sustainability and use of natural resources.
New for this time was that the whole event was livestreamed, with the video being available here.

Dalia Abdelfattah was responsible for the second half of the seminar.
